All Day LIFT Exhibition Series: Unobstructed Beauty (Multi-Day Event)

This year, the LIFT series features three female painters from the Waterloo Region: Lauren Judge, Marion R. Anderson, and Anne Filiatrault. Each artist shares a narrative that invites viewers to reflect on how we perceive and experience our surrounding environment.

The LIFT microgalleries are located on floors 4-6 of the Waterloo campus Library daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  • All Day Penelope Stewart: Thicket Mixed Media Installation (Multi-Day Event)

    Thicket features three haptic garden spaces created in the gallery. Comprised of an installation of 12,000 beeswax leaves, a collection of photographs and a series of beeswax cast sculptures - artist Penelope Stewart expands the visual field while creating a reciprocal conversation between image and object.

    For more information about Penelope Stewart's work, check out her website here.

  • All Day Writing Activism: Indigenous Newsprint Media in the Era of Red Power (Multi-Day Event)

    This exhibition by C. Elizabeth Best explores modern Indigenous identity through her art practice and academic thesis work. See her artist statement below for a detailed description.

    On 16 May 1976, a young AIM activist killed himself in protest of the mishandling of Indigenous affairs by the Canadian federal government.

    This series of paintings complement my Master’s thesis. I made these pieces in tandem with my academic work. Despite the distance of 40 years, I mourned the loss of the young AIM activist. It wasn’t until I made a painting in his honour that I felt I could process this tragedy outside of myself.

    My second painting, the pink and turquoise rabbit, is an amalgamation of my own identity. Identity plays a central role in my thesis and this theme flowed naturally into the art I made during the past academic year.

    The series of three represent the main chapters of my paper. When I think about my thesis, bits and pieces float in and out of focus. I tried to capture that feeling with this series by using my notes to produce a visual representation of my thesis.

    This series represents the process I went through to understand the material I was reading and writing about. I think it is important for academics to experiment with different ways of presenting their work. Expression through art is how I have chosen to present my academic work to a varied audience. For more information, please see my thesis, Writing Activism: Indigenous Newsprint
    Media in the Era of Red Power, accessible through the Laurier Library.
